New Year’s Resolution – Play Clean Records
I have been an avid record collector for more than 30 years, and few things give me as much pleasure as listening to vinyl. Even better is listening to a record that has been cleaned thoroughly, an important step to preserve LPs and to enjoy optimal fidelity. There’s a lot of music hidden in those grooves, which can be revealed only when records are clean.
If you are looking for a topnotch record cleaning system, I highly recommend Nitty Gritty’s 2.5Fi-XP. The newest model from Nitty Gritty is a fully automatic cleaner and vacuum system that not only cleans 33, 45 and 78 rpm records but can also reduce significantly surface noise on the platter surfaces. The 2.5Fi-XP features two fluid reservoirs, making it possible to employ two different cleaning fluids for an initial wash and then secondary deep cleaning. The whole process takes less than 2 minutes, and records come out sparkling and sounding great.
